Last night we read something concerning about Manchester United. Horrifying even.

It was reported that United may not sign a centre back this summer.

The Mail report: “Despite concerns, Solskjaer does not currently intend to add a centre-back.”

Now Ole, please hear our voice, which will echo every United fan around the world.

“Don’t even think it, Please say this isn’t true.”

We get Koulibaly is overpriced. So is Maguire. But there are good options out there.

 

Toby Alderweireld for just £26million. Putting faith in young Axel Tuanzebe is admirable, but it’s not fair on the kid to not sign anybody else either.

Our options are so thin we ended up with Phil Jones and Ashely Young at centre back recently.

There is so much deadwood to shift, the defence needs an overhaul. It’s taken its toll finally on De Gea

We understand there are other areas to strengthen, but if United ignore centre-back this summer, forget a successful season in 2019/20.
